This blog is a new venture for me. I typically don't begin new things not knowing where it will lead, but this is the case with this blog. What I know for sure is that I have an interest in continuing conversations about current events, the need for healing, relationship-building and shaping a way forward together.
I have an unwaivering passion for Relational Cultural Theory. RCT is an approach which focuses on the centrality of human connections, sees isolation as the source of human suffering, and posits an understanding of race and culture as a part of the relational experience. It is an approach which has been with me for almost 30 years, and it is the lens through which I understand my experience and the experience of others. It is a deeply personal approach which has shaped my life, both personally and professionally.
Therefore, I expect that this blog will take on the shape of an RCT approach to current topics and issues, I have a liberal bias, for sure, as most feminists do. I welcome your comments and feedback, as we work together to shape a relational world.
